If you've recently bought a pair of Moonbird Pyjama’s then you would have received them in our Moonbird cotton drawstring gift bag. It’s totally ok if you haven’t noticed yet, however we thought you may like to know that there is a great cause and countless stories behind what may only seem like a basic cotton drawstring gift bag.
Our Moonbird bags are made in conjunction with a company called Freeset.
Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped or forced into Kolkata’s sex trade. Through Freeset, women are now being offered a real chance to break the cycle with a salary and health care. They can re-build their lives that have been so damaged by trauma and abuse. The women make good quality jute bags and organic cotton t-shirts but their main focus is on freedom.
Freeset is not just about the transformation of individual lives; it’s also about transformation of the wider community. It means Moonbird cotton drawstring bags are more than just a few pieces of fabric stitched together. Our packaging is supporting the transformation of communities and the transformation of women who deserve to be free!.
